Balfour Playcentre is parent led and provides two morning sessions each week, for children up to school age.
Sessions are led by an experienced, paid educator with the help of members.
The building is situated on the Balfour School grounds and we have a strong relationship with the staff and children of the school.
The implementation of the Te Whariki Early Childhood curriculum means 16 areas of play of integrated with the core subjects to provide emerging and spontaneous work/play that allow progress for the individuals to be monitored, guided and advanced at their own level and needs. Our centre is well resourced with lots of great learning tools, toys and everything needed for your child to have fun!
We are a unique facility as we also house the Balfour Plunket Clinic. We aim to provide a warm and inviting space for families with new born babies and in due course hope that these babies will join our Playcentre Whanua.
We warmly invite you to visit our wonderful little centre!
